Notes:

Three separate chapterheads: one with two cherubs, or naked boys, each holding one end of a rope, or a pipe with a bulb on the end, perhaps about to squirt some giant flowers; one with a Greek male head (possibly neptune) in a circle with large fish all round; one with two dragons or wyverns having the heads of women, the body of snakes, and dragon wings.

These look like they were origially woodcuts from the fifteenth century but i am not certain. The book gives no source for them.
